The intertwining of Bollywood and cricket in India extends back decades, with Shah Rukh Khan co-owning multiple cricket teams and other celebrities involved in team ownership.

The long-standing connection between cricket and Bollywood also includes marriages between cricketers like Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, Mohd Azharuddin, Harbhajan Singh, Yuvraj Singh, Zaheer Khan, K.L. Rahul, and Virat Kohli with Bollywood actors.

Leading up to the WPL 2024 opening ceremony, the official Instagram page has been sharing updates on Bollywood actors preparing for the event. The anticipation is high, with Shah Rukh Khan featured in a video, inviting fans to join the live broadcast at 6.30 PM on @sports18.official or @officialjiocinema to witness the stars’ performances.

The WPL marks a significant stride for women’s cricket, building on the momentum initiated when India’s women’s cricket league commenced on March 4, 2023. This followed years of advocacy for equal platforms, leading to women’s cricket falling under the Board of Control for Cricket in India, and the match fees aligning with their male counterparts for the first time in history. The signs indicate that women’s cricket is on the path to establishing its own “Queendom.”
